History and Fiction

Why don't writers who fictionalize history just write fiction? Why did Shakespeare call his character Richard III or King John? Why not call him Reginald I or Murray II? If a fiction writer does choose to use a real person's name, does the writer have any obligation to make the fictional character resemble the real one?
